Once you've experienced the delicious and health-enriching qualities of milk and water kefir you will not want to touch another empty-calorie soda or expensive yogurt again. The fact that you can flavor either however you want (delicious raspberry-mango or blueberry-coconut, whatever!) makes it even that much better. Kefir contains upwards of 40-60 strains of beneficial bacteria and yeast, beating out yogurt or pills by producing trillions of microflora in each cup. Water kefir is a great alternative if you're searching for non-dairy probiotic options in your diet, or just want variety. Water kefir is one pro-biotic beverage you will not even find in the stores.

We enjoy drinking both of these ourselves and are always happy to share them (and our recipes) with others. All you need is milk for the milk kefir and water, sugar and some dried fruits for you water kefir to keep your grains alive and happy and make delicious kefir! We've found both to be a very rewarding experience and economical to boot. :)

Our milk kefir grains are fed and nourished daily with organic whole milk and our water kefir with organic whole cane sugar (and occasionally blackstrap molasses and organic dried fruits). Our kefir grains have been built over time from multiple sources worldwide to ensure that our grains have strains that are strong, balanced, diverse, vibrant, and flexible. Our little guys live in a clean home where organic, non-toxic cleaners are used and there are no toxic by-products in the air. Culture-friendly materials are used at all times when handling the grains. We want to support and respect the health of our cultures, ourselves and the world at large!

What’s the Difference Between Dehydrated and Live Grains?
____________________________________________________________

Live milk and water kefir grains are fully active grains which will produce kefir right away. They are taken straight from their current fresh batch of milk or sugar-water and sent to your home. They take less time to balance upon arrival than dehydrated grains and are more likely to both thrive and grow sooner.

Dehydrated grains are grains that have become dormant after being dried. They may require many days to re-balance and activate - some (like water) may even fail to thrive. Receiving live grains simplifies the process and saves you time. Some choose to ship dehydrated kefir grains because of the difficulty and distance (ie shipping internationally). Live water kefir grains are extremely active even while shipping. We have found a secure way to package and ship them priority mail despite their activity and we guarantee they will make it safely to your home (or we will resend /refund).

We do offer DRIED milk kefir grains as well in our shop. Dried grains are less expensive and can travel further distances with less risk. Great for international destinations. You can also store these grains if you aren't ready to use them right away.

Traveling To Its New Home (Shipping)
____________________________________________________________


We pack our fresh kefir grains carefully to ensure a successful journey to your home, wherever you may be. These are bagged securely and shipped Priority Mail immediately after packing. We typically ship at the beginning of the week to help avoid the grains sitting over the weekend before delivery.

We do NOT ship LIVE grains internationally presently. If you are outside the US, we recommend purchasing the dried version.

Upon arrival, you will notice that the water kefir grains will be sitting in a light brownish liquid. The color is simply due to the organic raw brown sugar. If grown in white sugar, they will turn clear.

You will also receive a detailed, step-by-step instructions e-guide on how to get started and care for your kefir. Look inside your package for a unique informative card with a link to our e-guide, which will also be emailed to you.

You are also welcome to email us with any questions you may have now or in the future!

A Little Bit About Kefir in General
____________________________________________________________

What Is Milk Kefir?

Milk kefir is a wonderfully delicious fermented milk similar to yogurt that originated roughly 2000 years ago in the Caucasian Mountains. It has a tart effervescent yogurt flavor with a consistency similar to thick buttermilk. The word Kefir is derived from the Turkish word “Keif” describing a state of 'feeling good' and with good reason.

Kefir is a probiotic powerhouse. In just one cup of kefir there are trillions of health-promoting micro-flora produced from upwards of 40-60 strains of beneficial bacteria and yeast. Much more than yogurt or acidophilus pills contain!

What Is Water Kefir?

Water kefir grains create a zesty and delicious carbonated lacto-fermented beverage. It is thought to have originated in Mexico, originally fermented with the juice of the Prickly Pear Cactus. Water Kefir grains are also know as Tibicos, Tibi, Sugar Kefir Grains, Graines Vivantes, Japanese Water Crystals and California Bees.

Water kefir, just like milk kefir, consists of beneficial bacteria and yeast existing in a complex symbiotic relationship. The benefits of water kefir are similar to those of milk kefir, and are a perfect alternative for those who wish to avoid dairy, or just want another tasty addition to their pro-biotic menu!

What are the Health Benifits of Milk and Water Kefir?

Both kefirs are loaded with valuable enzymes, easily digestible nutrients, vitamins and minerals. Milk kefir is even suitable for the lactose intolerant and water kefir for some diabetics due to the low GL. They have both long been known to promote and aid in digestion and overall health. Genuine kefir is different than the overpriced kefir you can buy in the stores, which is usually a simulated drink to mimic the flavor and is not produced by the traditional method, thus lacking the quality and health benefits of true traditional kefir.

Is kefir easy to make?
____________________________________________________________


Yes, kefir is very simple and fun to make! Milk kefir can be made from any type of milk (whole, low fat, non-fat, organic, raw) cow or goat. The grains simply need to be placed in a jar of milk at room temperature and they will do the rest! In 24 hours you will have a delicious healthy drink! Simply strain, put in fresh milk and repeat! Kefir grains often outlive their owners!

Water kefir is also just as fun and easy to make, and not something to feel intimidated by at all! It can be made with any type of sugar and fruit. You can create whatever taste you desire by choosing your favorite sugar and fruit. There are many delicious combinations out there and the resulting flavors with this are quite endless!
